Default RE: Help?? My Clancy Lazy Bee Lacks Power!

I think a gearbox will be your best bet. On direct drive, the SC400 is a "go fast" motor. The Lazy Bee is definitely not a "go fast" plane.

I haven't heard of too many geared applications using the SC400 motor, though. Most people give up on it in the early running. I'm not sure why, because my 3rd generation has been going strong for quite a while now. They're a little inefficient, but they pack quite a punch.
